Call for Presentations Extended!

There's still time to submit your session! The session submission deadline is now 8 September 17!  One of the key elements to making this conference a success is your participation! The standard of presentations at last year's conference was excellent and the organizing committee is confident that with your help, 2017 can be even better! This can only happen with your support so we need you to get involved by submitting proposals for presentations for the conference.

Presentations will be 45 minutes including time for questions. There will again be five tracks: CRM, Finance, HCM, Project and Change Management, Student and Technical. Or perhaps you may wish to present on an issue across tracks such as training, security, use of dashboards, reporting strategies, life cycle management or other exciting topics!

The primary speaker for every session proposal accepted will receive a free registration to the ANZ Alliance Down Under 2017 conference.
